Aurora's Softy Soakers™ Make a Splash in Plush Playtime

Plunge Plush Toys in Water, Expand to Full Size in 40 Seconds

Pico Rivera, CA - July 2011 - Aurora World Inc.
(www.auroragift.com), celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, is releasing a plush collection that loves diving into water in the summer as much as kids do. Simply place Softy Soakers in water and the plush expands from practically nothing into a full size, eight-inch plush animal. The initial collection includes the "Fanta-Sea" plush assortment, and based on the response from buyers at this year's winter shows, Aurora sees a huge hit in the making.

"Everyone who came to our booths or showrooms earlier this year inquired about these H20-friendly toys," says Michael Kessler, SVP of sales and marketing. "With Softy Soakers, kids have a new way to experience their plush animals and don't have to wait long for the toy to 'grow up'," Kessler says. "Softy Soakers are good to go in about 40 seconds. They don't take 72 hours to become full size, like some other products on the market."

The "Fanta Sea" collection (MSRP: $10 each) includes a sea horse, octopus, hammerhead shark, dolphin, sea turtle and alligator. "All you have to do is fill a bowl with water and drop in the Softy Soaker. We suggest massaging it for speedy water absorption. Then after 40 seconds, grab a towel, "rub-a-dub-dub" it dry and you're ready for some fun." Kessler adds it is a relatively simple process for any child, mom or dad and a great toy for the summer months.
